IH4Future considers the scientific study of the Vale de Milhaços Gunpowder Factory (VMGF), namely the material characterisation of 30 representative equipment.
For this purpose, metallic alloys, lubricants, and coatings are assessed by using different exam and analytical techniques, such as optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, micro-Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction.
These studies will contribute to assess the conservation state and to the musealisation process of the VMGF, with scientific-based knowledge on the industry history and technological development.
The promotion of Industrial Heritage in the Municipality of Seixal will add value to the local industrial past, enhancing the residents’ identity and encouraging the localisation in an increasingly globalised world.
